22. Montana has had several D governors

Montana also has the only statehouse in the nation without security checkpoints, or if they have them now they were the last to install them.

I read a fun story once of Brian Schweitzer’s time as governor. (Schweitzer was the governor the GOP was most afraid of, because none of their attacks would have worked on him.) Apparently a family from out of state was vacationing in Helena when they decided to have lunch. They wanted to eat inside so they went in the statehouse and found an empty room, which turned out to be the executive conference room. Schweitzer found them in there, went in and asked them about their vacation, where they got their food, etc., then told them to have a nice lunch and started to leave. They asked him what he did in the Montana government. “Oh, I’m the governor.”
